Squash Flatbrad (Paleo, AIP, Coconut-free) | Fresh Tart

I feel guilty for all the months I’ve been teasing about this recipe, posting pics on Instagram but never posting a recipe. The reason is that I never liked it quite enough to share, or I’d like it once but not be able to replicate it. But this time, I think I’ve got it nailed….

Teff & Oat Flour Yogurt Pancakes | Fresh Tart (gluten-free)

Some of the tastiest gluten-free baked items I’ve sampled include teff flour, so I finally picked up a bag a last week (at The Wedge) and started playing around with it here at home. My first attempt was popovers, which I renamed as pffffts. Quite delicious, but flat as pancakes.So next I tried pancakes! Given…

Tomato Sweet Corn Quiche

For the third summer in a row, I’ve had the pleasure of being invited to a Tomato Party. The party kicks off with the hostess’s jewel-toned tomato-basil water, spiked with a bit of vodka, glistening with a drizzle of olive oil. It is the very essence of summer’s end, a fragrant reminder to hurry up…

Clafoutis

Clafoutis

All-American pie is always perfect, but consider warm, fruity, French clafoutis for this 4th of July celebration. For one, clafoutis is faster to pull together. Can you mix pancake batter? In a blender? Then you can make clafoutis, which is in effect a giant crepe, scattered with fruit, and eaten hot out of the oven…

Browned Butter: Savory or Sweet

Brown Butter Berry Crepes | Fresh Tart (gluten-free, grain-free)

Browned butter (beurre noisette), is having its moment in the spotlight for good reason. Not that butter isn’t beautiful on its own, but a few minutes of carefully applied heat transforms its subtle sweet saltiness to nutty brown cheesiness, creating a rather magical sauce in the process. If you’ve ever bathed your palate in the…

Grain-free Gluten-free "Bread"

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 27, 2013 at 8:29am

I saw a recipe for this bread on the terrific blog Against All Grain. As I’ve noted before, I find eating even gluten-free grains inflammatory (and with a bigger carbohydrate punch than I can get away with, unless I want to gain weight and feel exhausted…). You could call this way of eating Paleo, but…

Savory French Toast with Mushrooms

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 17, 2012 at 10:08am

I couldn’t eat much of anything this terrible, sad weekend, but as my desire to cook has slowly returned, I’m turning to comfort foods. I made pan-seared steaks with a dried-and-fresh-mushroom pan sauce and it was just really nice to serve John and Nathan one of their favorite meals. I made a good amount of…

Perfect Soft-Boiled Eggs

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Jul 17, 2012 at 10:56am

When I was a little girl, I thought I’d really be a grown-up when I could eat soft-boiled eggs for breakfast, just like my dad. I was fascinated by the way he carefully tapped the top off with a knife, then sprinkled salt & pepper inside before scooping spoonfuls onto bites of seriously buttery toast…

Cinnamon Streusel Muffins

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on May 13, 2012 at 7:39pm

My son asked me this morning, “Hey, what’s that crumbly cinnamon stuff you put on top of muffins? Make that, like, all the time.” Streusel! Yes! We are a family obsessed with streusel. When I was a little girl, I asked my mom if she could make a whole pan of just streusel, skipping the…

Bacon, caramelized onions, double cheese, and eggs. This works on so many levels. Recipe for Bacon & Onion Tart at Andrew Zimmern’s Kitchen Adventures/Food & Wine Magazine.
